Pairing the technologies of CFD and measuring data

Nowadays simulation methods like CFD are used for prototyping instead of classic building a prototype and making measurements. For reduction of the calculation time modells are used. It is recomended to validate these models with measurement data at the beginning of the optimization. OPTOLUTION can support you with knowhow and measurement equipment. Our main programm for CFD is OpenFOAM®.

Typical applications:

  • Optimization of flow disturber for simulation of installation conditions in pipes
  • Optimization of flow conditioning modules and
  • Improving the knowhow about process technology.

Example: Formation of swirl in a u-tube with turbulent inlet profile (according to Gersten-Herwig)
